Nevada brothel 'pimping' for Ron Paul's campaign

But spokesman says conservative Christian presidential candidate finds prostitution 'personally morally abhorrent'

The Washington Post

Turns out raising money in a brothel is harder than it looks.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada, is so impressed with Ron Paul that he announced plans last week to put up a collection box at the door.

His lawyers advised that anonymous donations are a no-no, so now he's thinking of starting a PAC: Hookers for Paul.

The endorsement came after Hof got a call from Tucker Carlson (who's writing a profile of the GOP presidential candidate) inviting him to Paul's news conference in Reno.

Hof, who calls himself a libertarian, was blown away: "He's a live-and-let-live guy, 'You don't bother me, I don't bother you.' That's our state," he said Tuesday. "He's not pro-prostitutes. He just doesn't want the federal government meddling in states' business."

The former salesman went back to the ranch and gathered his bunnies he's got 500 and urged them to donate to the campaign; he's also running a customer special: "If you come in the Bunny Ranch and say, 'I'm pimping for Paul,' you get two bunnies for the price of one."

So how does this fit into the campaign's plan for Nevada, where Paul is hoping to win big in January's primary? "I guess that's the price of freedom," said spokesman Jesse Benton.

"Ron's a conservative Christian. Quite frankly, he finds prostitution personally morally abhorrent. Sometimes you have to put up with things that don't jibe with your personal view of the world."

Moved from Hot Deals Forum. I haven't been here (Politics Forum) in so long that I don't know if this is even appropriate here. I'll let the Politics Mods deal with this. Thanks. =)

Is this the guy who has had his place shown on some of those HBO shows? Not that I would watch those or anything.....

More importantly, do I get both hookers at the same time?

Where is this ranch? And it would be preferable if the deal was for separate visits. No need to blow your wad all at once.

Makes sense to put the ranch near the capital. Lots of rich white men.

I don't even know where Carson City is, so it probably is very far from LV.

Yes, I hear it is against state statute in Nevada for black men to be rich.

Are you implying that there are majority African American representatives in Carson? Do you know anything about Nevada, or just enjoy spouting ignorances?

No, I laid a little smackdown about the "rich white men" comment. Is Carson City under some sort of apartheid. Are you saying that rich black men are so morally upright that they would never use the services of a prostitute.

If you live in Nevada, you should know that prostitution is legal in 11 of its counties.
